I don't know if paradise exists, but this lovely place comes pretty close. Having walked some of the more popular tracks in South Island, we decided that we should walk the Nydia Track, which is much less busy. We arranged a 'transport and stay' package with On the Track Lodge, and we were driven very gently up to the north... More

Can't say enough positive things about this place. The hosts, Tom, Norma and Duncan are amazing! So welcoming and relaxed. We left feeling like family, rather than guests. The location and facilities are first class and a very welcome break from the outside world. Thanks so much guys, we'll be back! Paul, Rebecca and family.

Warm hospitality,all needs catered for, lovely accommodation, a gorgeous location- Tom, Norma and Duncan have created a slice of paradise. Even if you are not walkers, catch a boat and go there for a night or more. You will be nurtured and recharged by the experience.

It's all about amazing hosts. The hosts welcome you like family and nothing is a problem. The rooms are very comfortable and the grounds are a lot of fun. Kids were welcomed and they loved the place. Thanks very much Tom, Norma and Duncan. Regards Pete, Lisa and the girls.

Who knew such an amazing place existed in the Marlborough Sounds? After a day walking in the rain Tom welcomed us at the lodge with hot coffee and carrot cake. We spent the afternoon relaxing, exploring the surroundings, spotting native birds and petting the goats. A dip in the hot tub at night with stars above us before going to... More

On The Track Lodge lies at the half way point of the Nydia Track. The Nydia Track is a hidden gem and the On The Track Lodge makes the hike even more special than it already is. On The Track is off the grid (has its own sustainable energy system) and is neat as a pin whilst still being a... More

This place is wonderful - the location is beautiful but above all it's the hosts that make it a place to remember. They are warm and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the garden is lovely but above all it's the amazing home cooking - we treated ourselves to breakfast, packed lunch and dinner and every mouthful was superb....

This is the second time that I've walked the track and spent the night at On the Track Lodge. Three of us walked the track, roughly 4 hours, from Duncan Bay into Nydia Bay and spent 1 night at On the Track Lodge. The Lodge is amazing. Stunning surrounds and the facilities are fantastic. Nice bedding, comfortable beds, fresh clean... More
